Fans were given a special glimpse into the new season of the NBC show earlier this year.

A page from the script has been leaked online after a show boss Tweeted an image from the upcoming series.

Series co-creator Max Mutchnick took to Twitter to share the glimpse into the comeback series.

The Emmy Award-winning producer tweeted a picture from the writer’s room showing an episode called ‘The Wedding’.

In the script Jack is arguing with Will over a date.

He also asks for money at the end of his comments – when Karen enters with a monkey, apparently.

The script reads: “JACK: I see where this going. You ask me to be your date, you drink too much, I’m disgusted, you feel uncomfortable and end up giving me money at the end of the night.

“I guess what I’m saying is, I need to borrow a grand.

“We can talk about it later when you’re plastered.

“WILL: Jack, you read my mind. I guess I’ll go with Plan B. No date.


It comes after the cast began filming the new season, and seem to be having the time of their lives.

Megan Mullally posted that she was “back in drag” with her partner-in-crime Sean Hayes dressed as Jack, triggering a flurry of excitement.
